DeAndre Hopkins earns Texans game ball in loss to 49ers

DeAndre Hopkins earns Texans game ball in loss to 49ers”

Entering the game for a concussed Tom Savage in the second quarter, Yates did the smart thing by targeting DeAndre Hopkins early and often. San Francisco added 41-yard field goal after that to secure the victory.

Garoppolo, who arrived in Santa Clara on October 31 after a trade with the New England Patriots, has the most yards passing for any 49ers quarterback making his first two starts since the National Football League merger in 1970.

On his first series, Yates led the Texans on a nine-play, 75-yard touchdown drive, throwing a 7-yard pass to wide receiver.

Savage was 6-12 and threw for 63 yards before exiting this game way too late.

But the offense got going just before the end of the first half.

Garoppolo went 20-for-33 passing with 334 yards to go along with a touchdown and an interception.

In Week 17 last season, Savage was initially cleared to return to a game against the Tennessee Titans, but he was later diagnosed with a concussion and ruled out.

Yates completed 11 of 19 passes for 178 yards and two touchdowns in his relief appearance. The Texans punted on the following play. Celek's 61-yard catch-and-run in the third quarter was the longest reception of his career.

-The 49ers activated defensive linemen Aaron Lynch and Tank Carradine and deactivated Ronald Blair, Leger Douzable and D.J. Jones.

Fans on social media implored the quarterback to remain out of the game.
